I'm not too sure about this rather compelling piece. As I am a saint (ha,ha!) I have never succumbed to the demon drink but I can just about imagine the thrashing that the mind takes when in that particular hell -net, is it a hell for the participant? The idea of the worm is very, very, clever and I think you have expressed the worm well. The notion of the world as a whore is terrifying and could open up- a whole philosphical area of discussion - which might be what you intended. If this is a cry for help it is powerful, if an acceptance, then it still has a sad story to tell. I just hope you are looking at this rather than experiencing it Obviously I believe this poem works on more than one level - was this iwhat you wanted? A sad read but a compelling one. Thank you.
Well, I cannot comment as thoroughly as Donald did for I am low on time, but I will try to do my best. I think this is a very relatable piece. I am not sure if that is a real word, or if I just made it up. Either way, I think almost everyone has experienced something like this. I like the fact that this wasn't just a bland description. You actually gave some imagery, and put a lot of feelings in. I love this line: and the world is a whore sizing me up for a price I have definitely felt that way before. You did a good job capturing the human emotion spectrum. LeAnna
